The twenty-second track off the 3rd Andy the Doorbum full length "Art is Shit"


First by flood, then by disease.
Send your letters and ashes to me.
Mountain top cemetery
In the perfect display of atonement.
Nothing higher than mountain tops.

And in the Spring the grubs will climb up from their logs.
Drinking dandelion wine. Slaughtering hogs.
And in the Fall the air is crisp.
The trees, they'll moan.
Breaking wrists with rounded stones.

Life, the ultimate offering.
I act as if only I possess it.
Lay your head down on my knee.
Knock a hole so the demons will exit.
Take me up there and throw me off.

And on the Solstice, oh, my axe...
I'll worship her.
In the tangle briar patch the sun will blur.
And when the snow melts off that hill
The ark will float.
Bailing water out the boat...
